YISUN was questioned once by their disciples at their speaking house. The questions were the following:
'What is the ultimate reason for existence?'
To which YISUN replied, 'Self-deception.'
'How can a man live in perfect harmony?'
To which YISUN replied, 'Non-existence.'
'What is the ultimate result of all action?'
To which YISUN replied, 'Futility.'
'How best can we serve your will?'
To which YISUN replied, 'Kindly ignore my first three answers.'

YISUN on the Conquering King
A Conquering King must come with violence in his self of selves. He must splay the guts of his enemy with no weapon but his heartstrings. His lips must spit sweet music that pulverizes his enemies, and his eyes must tell a brain-cleaving tale of loveliness. He must quench the sword of his tongue in the love of his enemies.
